Demon Pigeon Attacks Terrified Girl, Ruins Dinner

Hello, readers of my mother's blog! Emily here. I've been having some really amazing experiences this summer, so of course the first thing I actually write about is this:

I love Teddy's Bigger Burgers. It's one of my favorite restaurants.  They have these amazing teriyaki burgers that I absolutely adore. I've been planning to get one, and today I finally had my chance. My friend Gaby and I had just finished teaching our last 5-Day Club for the day and went to hang out at a local strip mall to get some smoothies. And while we were there... Lo and behold..... a Teddy's! I went inside while Gabby went to get a smoothie, and she came back right around the time my teri-burger was finished.

 It was probably the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

I took it outside to eat at one of the tables. Gabby was reading and I was just enjoying my burger when out of nowhere a pigeon just dive-bombed me. It whacked me in the head with one of its wings and sat on my burger. I shrieked (in a very dignified way), and the little demon flew away, flipping my burger over onto the table. The pigeon landed on the ground less than two feet away and gave me a look. I did the only reasonable thing I think of - I threw my tray at it, which finally banished it back to whence it came.
 
I looked back at my beloved teri-burger. The top half of the bun had been cruelly ripped away from the rest of the burger, and I had no choice but to throw it away. Gabby tried to convince me to finish it anyway, since there were only three bites left, but the memory of the stupid little pigeon from the twisting nether regions kept me from following her advice.

So, long story short: I didn't get to finish my dinner, and I hate pigeons.
